VW Tiguan by ABT

ABT as one of the official VW tuners, has quickly come up with a complete package for the 2011 Tiguan crossover. The Bavarians have given the car both a new look, a nicer interior, and a complete engine tuning program.

As always, they first got busy with the engines, all of them, and gave them each a bunch of extra horses.

The successful 2.0 TDI version now offers strong 170 HP/125 kW (series standard: 140 HP/103 kW) or 195 HP/143 kW (series standard: 170 HP/125 kW). With the economical turbo petrol engine with 1.4 litre cubic capacity a dynamic 210 HP (154 kW) is available instead of the standard 160 HP (118 kW). The fact that the fuel consumption does not increase as a result is a matter of course at ABT Sportsline. The sportiest Tiguan is the one with the 2.0-TSI engine. The machinery is currently undergoing extensive testing but the technicians have already revealed that – depending on the series performance – either over 210 HP (154 kW) or as much as 250 HP (184 kW) will be reached.

As for the looks, they offer ABT designer light alloy wheels in 18 to 20 inch, ABT suspension, and an aero kit including:

  • ABT front grill
  • ABT door strip attachements
  • ABT rear skirt set with exhaust system
  • ABT rear wing
